This was my first visit and I went in for an Ortho Consultation. Right away I was greeted by all of the staff at the front desk. There was no wait time when I checked in, and Clarissa came to getme. She started with a tour, provided me with the details of the visit and did my x-rays and photos. She was professional and very courteous. I was offered chap stick and water. Dr. Tabakman was also very professional and thorough in his time with me. I got a full explanation of treatment with multiple options and decided to receive treatment. Everything was excellent and I look forward to braces treatment from Dr. Tabakman
